Women absolutely rule this episode of B-Side HNL as Rotten Blossom give us a tour of Kailua, including all the Windward Oahu sites that helped grow this budding punk rock ensemble. See music videos by women musicians like Charlotte Day Wilson and female-fronted bands like Super Unison, who deserve to be heard; enjoy a cool animated short courtesy of the super talented Victoria Vincent and meet a girl-powered skate crew in Kristelle “Kelsey” Laroche‘s “Gnarly in Pink”.

I am a lifelong Honoluluan whose true calling is to tell the stories of others, whether through photos, film, video, audio or the written word. Here is a collection of my works – some previously published in periodicals like Billboard, the Honolulu Advertiser, Honolulu Star-Bulletin and Honolulu Weekly, though most of what you read or view here has never been seen before.
